Slate gray paper boards, aqua and color illus. dust jacket, 240 pp., many color illus. Presents select pages from the 300+ sketchbooks of English landscape painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851). "This book is the first to survey the full range of Turner's sketchbooks, illustrating pages selected from over a hundred, beginning with his teenage efforts and culminating in the atmospheric colour studies of his last years, charting his final travels in Venice, Switzerland and northern France. In addition to those at Tate, the few book preserved in other museum collections are also featured, including the 'Channel' sketchbook of 1845, now at the Yale Center for British Art, which only resurfaced on the art market in 1986." (dj) A stunning book indeed. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: One of the most popular painters of all time, J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851) created a remarkable collection of sketchbooks over the course of his career. Thoughtful, revealing, and beautifully rendered, Turner’s sketchbooks offer an unparalleled window into his creative process. In the absence of detailed written accounts of his extensive travels, the notebooks also contain his impressions of the many places he visited across Britain and Europe. In this book, the first full survey of the artist’ssketchbooks, readers are invited to take a privileged look over Turner’s shoulder, witnessing the creation and development of ideas that can be traced through to his major paintings. Beginning with his teenage efforts and culminating in the atmospheric color studies of his last years, Turner’s Sketchbooks is a unique opportunity to explore the mind of a beloved artist.
